In chess, strategy is a crucial element of the middlegame that guides you to find the winning move! When you wonder what move to play, ask yourself, “What is my strategy?” and then look to find your next move.
Chess strategy gives your moves purpose and turns you into a chess player instead of a wood pusher. Don’t lose time by letting your pieces wander aimlessly over the board.
Chess strategy often comes in second behind tactics in most player’s chess training. Yet, knowing your middlegame strategy doesn’t just help you reach favorable endgames; it also enables you to choose the right opening.
The more middlegame strategies you know, the easier it is to choose which opening to play. You want openings that lead to middlegame positions you enjoy playing!
For example, if you prefer to play positions without a pawn weakness, then the isolated queen’s pawn positions are not the best middlegames for you. However, the isolated queen’s pawn is a great chess strategy if you like active piece play, sacrifices, and a space advantage.
